School Counseling Department Update

As you know, one of our school counselors Ms. Carue Davis passed away a few weeks ago. In addition, due to our growth we were recently allocated an additional counseling position. This means that we are seeking two school counselors at this time. While we work through filling these positions, we wanted to make sure our students and parents know who to reach out to if they are in need of guidance services.

Ms. Cuevas - Last Names But - Cou, F-J (12th Grade Only) and AICE Students

Ms. Feist - Last Names A - Benne, Ru-Z and ESE Access Points

Dr. Fitzgerald - Last Names Cox - Maq

Ms. Stuve - Last Names Bennf - Bus and Mar - Ro and ESE Access

Spotlight - Introduction to Homeland Security

Before Thanksgiving, our Dual Enrollment Introduction to Homeland Security course taught by Col. Howell and Mr. Reeder recently hosted the Mayor of Palm Coast, David Alfin, in their classroom. The class presented their fall project, a mock winter freeze scenario, which included preparation before and mitigation after the storm. The mayor was kind enough to give his feedback for the students and their teachers.
